Quote of the Day
"I want to report a rape. I feel as if my body -- or, at least my body of work -- has been violated by the movie, The Artist."
-- The first line of an ad in Variety taken out by Kim Novak in which the star of Vertigo complains that the recent, nearly silent film The Artist samples a line from Bernard Hermann's score for the Hitchcock classic
